I work collaboratively in the arts, across disciplines and I adopt a different role in each project I undertake. I may be called a performer, a writer, a facilitator, a curator, a producer, an artist or an idiot but I am not limited to any of these.
My interests lie in live art and performance, visual art, installation and site-specificity and my work reflects this. I trust in art’s capacity to help us realise, change or appreciate more about our own lives and the lives of others and I believe in art as a vital means of expression and communication – a tool for developing individual and collective intelligence, spirituality, philosophy and understanding.
I make performance based art works that explore, expand and explode my autobiography and I seek out my identity through personas, perception, perspective and prejudice (my own and those of others).
